Backcountry Attitude - Outdoor Recreation Home >> About Backcountry Attitude
The goal at Backcountry Attitude is to be one of the most informative backpacking and hiking related sites in the outdoor community. The overall general theme will be hiking and camping in a manner that minimizes impact on the outdoor environment.
The site recently got a facelift with a new layout to improve the user experience. If you experience any errors please let me know. You can see newly added pages or other updates here.
This site got it's start in 1998 at Geocities as a list of some of my favorite pages. I eventually started creating my own content. I finally got my own domain on 11/21/09 after 11 years at Geocities. Sadly the initial transition reduced traffic by 74% but it has been slowly recovering. The engines still like my pages but I'm basically starting from scratch. Part of the traffic issue is due to Yahoo... I thought they would redirect all my subpages to the new domain but instead they have redirected them all to the main page. So much for an "upgrade".
If you came from an old Geocities link out there please send a note to the webmaster to get them updated to make it easier for people find the web page they were navigating to.
By the way, I want to say THANKS to those people who have linked to the site, reported bugs on the site and who have also given their opinions of how to make the site better. It is appreciated!
Every good site has one right?
